out and panetta is set to go out. can this administration handle that much emptiness so quickly? >> that's a good question, too. one likes to see absolutely no turmoil. i spent a lot of time in the banking business, and the way people made money was if there was turmoil. when things are quiet, they're much better for the average person, much more difficult for somebody who is trying to make money. what we don't want to see in government, particularly at a difficult time, is turmoil. under normal circumstances there is usually a change in the guard in the middle between the two administrations, the first and the second. frequently there's a change after two years and we're liable to see this again in the normal course of events. the president sometimes likes to change his team. this is an instance when a secretary of state said, i'll wait until you get somebody else and get him confirmed, but i'm leaving. a lot of other people will do the same, only because that's a standard. it's tiring to be in that business at the top of the apex. this is no different in that regard. the diffi
finding a replacement for defense secretary leon panetta, finding a replacement for secretary of the treasury tim geithner, all of whom, geithner and clinton, have already said they want to leave. it was reported on friday i believe on andrea's show that lee on panetta might want to go. when you have all of those people who are in senior positions within the administration all needing or wanting to go at the same time, having the cia director resign is not the optimal thing to have happen. >> as the late robin harris said, if you have to go, you got to go but going at this time simultaneously is problematic. in light of the fact that panetta and petraeus were seen as outsiders, they weren't organically grown from within, they didn't involve themselves over the years in the organizations they led, that was already a problem. this obviously at the very least is a major distraction at a time when the president needs to be focused on a crucial moment of negotiation with congress on the fiscal cliff with everything from tax revenue to military spending at the state. it seems to be
allen is entitled to due process in this matter. >> reporter: secretary of defense leon panetta says the fbi has turned it over to the department of nefs investigator -- defense investigators. it centers around potentially inappropriate e-mails with jill kelley. that woman who sparked the investigation that led to petreaus' resignation from the head of the cia. >> my sister is a dedicated mother and wife. >> reporter: she first went to the fbi when she received threatening e-mails from an anonymous source. they were allegedly linked to paula broadwell. she was having an affair with petreaus and reportedly believed kelley was a romantic rival for his attention. investigators searched broadwell's home. they didn't say what they were looking for but carried out boxes boxes and a computer. general allen is in washington dc on his new job for head of the u.s. european command. president obama has now agreed to put the general's confirmation for that post on hold. >> while this matter is under investigation and before the facts are determined, general allen will remain commander. >> report

carrying secretary of defense leon panetta to australia. pentagon spokesman george little told reporters secretary panetta asked the white house to postpone general allen's appointment as supreme allied commander in europe. >> on sunday the federal bureau of investigation referred to the department of defense a matter involving general john allen, commander of the international security assistance force, or i.s.a.f., in afghanistan. >> reporter: the matter involves 20,000 to 30,000 pages of information the f.b.i. delivered sunday to the pentagon's inspector general. one senior official says the documents include a couple of hundred e-mails between general allen and jill kelley, the same tampa socialite who triggered the petraeus scandal. the e-mails discovered in kelley's files date back to 2010 when allen served as deputy commander for u.s. central command in tampa. pentagon and f.b.i. sources have characterized the e-mails as "inappropriate" and "flirtatious." one senior official said, for example, kelley would write something like "saw you on television, you were terrific." allen woul
with jill, leon panetta delivered new comments on the scandal hours ago. is the defense department at the tip of the investigation and what's the latest here? >> well, we'll get to that vote of confidence by mr. panetta in a second, but really the main thing that seems to be now clear is exactly how this unraveled. and it all has to do with tampa where, of course, u.s. central command is located and jill kelley, whom you just saw there, she was involved as a volunteer. she's no diplomatic protection whatsoever, but she was involved as a volunteer dealing with international visitors in the military apparently. so she in this capacity gets to know general petraeus and also general allen. so he gets an e-mail, she gets e-mails. he warns her that he's getting these e-mails, this is jill kelley. and jill kelley goes to the fbi and that is how this all unravels. now, speaking of general allen, he, of course, is the top u.s. and nato commander in afghanistan. he was nominated as the supreme allied commander in europe. and that nomination is on hold. but secretary panetta said that they ha
allen directly? >> not that i'm aware of no. >> secretary panetta? >> i'd have to check that. secretary panetta has been traveling. >> as sort of a follow-up to the last question, is this an unwelcome distraction at the time when he was just reelected and has a bunch of priorities in terms of fiscal cliff and in terms of his cabinet? >> i certainly wouldn't call it welcome. obviously as i said to ben that the information about general petraeus came to him as a surprise, and he is very appreciative of general petraeus' remarkable service to his country, but the president is focused on the agenda that he believes is important for this country, that he has to carry out, working with lawmakers here in washington. and that includes as you know his number one priority, which is jobs and economic growth. and he is engage nothing meetings this week on those issues, on the issues of the approach we need to take to assure we have the right economic policy, the right fiscal policy to help the economy grow and help it to continue to grow jobs. he is also continuously focused on his foreign policy a
defense secretary leon panetta. this is 90 minutes. >> chairman mckeon, chairman miller, ranking member smith and ranking member filner, dear former colleagues of mine, appreciate the opportunity to be here, and i also want to pay my respects to the members of both committees. this is a i unique event. it's an important event, and first and foremost, i want to thank all of the members of both the armed services and veterans committee for the support that you provide the department of defense, our men and women in uniform and our veterans. you -- we could simply not do the work that needs to be done in protecting this country and in serving those that are warriors and their families. we just could not do it without the partnership that we have with all of you. and for that reason, let me just express my personal appreciation to all of you for your dedication and for your commitment to those areas. i also want to thank you for the opportunity to appear this morning alongside secretary shinseki. he is a great friend, a great public servant, great military leader and a great friend to me an
really around the world as secretary of state hillary clinton and defense secretary leon panetta both say our nato's allies aren't worried this investigation will hurt our mission in afghanistan in any way. joining us john bolton, former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and fox news contributor. ambassador, nice to see you again. >> good morning. glad to be with you, jenna. jenna: let's talk about when hillary clinton and leon panetta had to say. based on your experience, ambassador, overall what are the effects of personal scandal in international relations? is there any sort of fallout we should be watching? >> i think there can be fallout but at this point i think it would be premature to jump to any conclusions because the circumstances we're talking about are not full le known. i think one of the reasons that secretary panetta in particular has been at pains to say that general allen still has his confidence even though his nomination to head up the european command has been put on hold is because he is still in theater in afghanistan. i think general petraeus's problems are a little bit
in afghanistan is linked to the investigation involving his predecessor. secretary of defense leon panetta says the fbi has turned the case over to department of defense investigators. the senior u.s. defense official says the inquiry centers around potentially inappropriate e-mails with jill kelley, the florida woman who sparked an investigation that led to petreaus' resignation as head of the cia. >> if you know my sister like i said, she is a dedicated mother and wife. >> reporter: kelley went to the fbi when she received threatening e-mails from an anonymous source. those were allegedly linked to paula broadwell. broadwell was having an affair with petreaus and reportedly believed kelley was a romantic rival for his attention. monday night investigators searched broadwell's home. agents didn't say what they were looking for but carried out boxes and a computer. general allen is in washington dc for senate confirmation hearing for his new job as head of the u.s. european command. however president obama has now agreed to put the general's confirmation for that poston hold. >> while this matt

contact between general john allen, and jill kelley. yesterday, secretary panetta asked that john kelley -- or john allen's nomination to be the head of nato be pulled back and put on hold while the inspector general starts to dig through all of these pages to find out exactly what happened. here's how it all connects. general john allen was stationed in tampa when he was at u.s. central command. so was general david petraeus. jill kelley worked as sort of a social liaison with a lot of the commanders there. in fact, she's been -- won awards for her work with some of the military families, and the military down there. now, paula broadwell started e-mailing jill kelley. and from what we know, some of those e-mails basically took the tone of, you know, stay away from david petraeus, sort of, i know sort of your relationship with some of these other generals, it's inappropriate. at the time it didn't make sense. because what we've been told is, david petraeus and jill kelley are family friends. that david petraeus and his wife holly have spent time with jill kelley and her husband. that the
of the attacks in benghazi. defense secretary leon panetta made it clear he is ready for retirement. senator john kerry, eyeing the secretary of state position may be asked to replace panetta. adding to the stakes of musical chairs, general allen's confirmation hearing to lead nato has been put on hold. during the campaign president obama called for nation building at home in his second term. he'll need to start by rebuilding his own team. john heilemann, you were a guest on the very first program of this show, there is a lot happening inside the president's inner leadership circle. how much of a problem do you think this is for him? >> first of all, let's not -- let's terry for a moment on -- i have been doing some math, 8,760, that's the number for today, 8,760 hours. >> wow. >> since alex wagner took over that chair and ever since -- >> subjected america to this program. >> and ever since then, root beer has flowed from the water fountains here at 30 rock and there has not been a cloudy day. >> and recess has been extended by 15 minutes. you're welcome america and 30 rocks. >> all lollipops an
viqueira at the white house, there's been speculation that leon panetta was expected to be replaced at defense. how much does this now complicate matters for the president? >> a good question. i think that specktation continues. obviously, we're talking about a lot of different positions if you want to talk about cabinet agencies in the second term. obviously secretary of state clinton this, some sitting senators who have been known to harbor some ambitions for some of these cabinet positions, where they end up, a big parlor game there. i think just at first blush they're going to take their time with the cia posting. i don't know if it directly affects what leon panetta is going to do. obviously, leon panetta has a lot of institutional knowledge hague not only served at the white house and in congress but as the dci, director of central intelligence before moving over to the defense department. so all of that very much up in the air. i would imagine that they're sort of going to stand pat where they are with by all accounts a very competent individual, the deputy director stepping
but, and it's a big but, on the other hand, defense secretary leon panetta ordered up a full-blown inspector general investigation, knowing he would set off a new firestorm across washington and leon panetta doesn't do that lightly. people on the other side tell us panetta would not have done it if there wasn't something to all this. >> right. the woman at the center of all this, this woman jill kelley, i'll turn to you, suzanne, on this. i want to play a tape, a 911 tape of kelley calling the tampa police to complain about people who were around the house, citing her status as apparently an honorary consul. listen to this. >> you know, i don't know if by any chance, because i'm an honorary consul general so i have inviolability. so they should not be able to cross my property. i don't know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved as well, but because that's against the law to cross my property because this is not, you know, it's inviolable. >> she seems to be laboring under massive misapprehensions here. she's not entitled to diplomatic immunity here, is she? >> no,
, as well. and also new this morning, defense secretary leon panetta is now asking whether the ethics training programs for military leaders are actually doing their job. and now he's ordering a review of the programs that are currently in place, just to find out if they're adequate. in a memo to the joint chiefs chairman, martin dempsey, secretary panetta said this, and i quote, "i seek your views on how to better foster a culture of value-based decisn-making and stewardship among senior generals and flag officers." cnn intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly joins us now with more on the story. this is a request that perhaps may not have come to many as a surprise, suzanne. the microscope is blazing, and my assumption is, and i don't know what your sources are saying, they just don't want to screw anything up in this investigation. >> yeah, well, not only that, but you know, the broadening the culture, ashlie, as you mentioned with this memo is looking to see just how far something like this might spread. we certainly never expected to hear general allen's name pulled into anything
secretary leon panetta made his comments about petraeus' decision to resign as the nation's top spot. according to panetta -- i think he took the right step and i think it's important when you're director of the cia with all the challenges that face youen that position that personal integrity comes first and foremost. >>> yeah, secretary of defense, leon panetta and the president agreed, general john allen was up for a promotion. going to become the united states european command and supreme allied commander. that nomination is going to be delayed again. general john allen denies any wrongdoing with jill kelly, the e-mails, 20,000 to 30,000 dating back to 2010. >> again, the tipping point may have been when petraeus according to all accounts, really crafted relationships with the media, was well aware of his image. high profile, very powerful man, and yet, when you came done to writing his official biography, he asked a woman to do it who had never writ in a book before. perhaps looking as this thing moves on, a telltale moment into what was really going on here. says a lot. >> every
. overnight a spokesperson for leon panetta said general allen told pentagon officials he had done nothing wrong. >> the secretary directed that the matter be referred to the inspector general of the department of defense for investigation. it's now in the hands of the department of the investigate general. >> general allen is in washington right now. he was supposed to hear at a confirmation hearing to be the commander of american forces in europe. but that meeting is now on hold. >>> 7:07. today at the white house, president obama meets with labor leaders to discuss ways to avoid the fiscal cliff. coming up at 7:5, the president's vatgy on getting -- the president's strategy on getting this fixed. >>> sal, you've had your hands full this morning. >> yeah, things are finally beginning to settle a lot bit, dave and tori. yeah, we had a couple of early problems that made the commute rough. it has not been all that bad when it comes crashes. we've had a few -- comes to crashes. we've had a few. at the bay bridge toll plaza, it's backed up for about a 10 to 15-minute wait. it's not quite as c

. the current defense secretary is leon panetta. he used to run the cia where he was succeeded by general petraeus. now that seat is also available. the same administration sources talking to "the post" also tell ing that the job is his. the job has made his desire to leave public service, but if he does reconsider, apparently the cia chief job should be his. if mr. brennan decides he does not want the job, the current acting director michael morell looks likely to keep the job. we'll have more on the questions surrounding the petraeus scandal and his abrupt departure later on in the show with a reporter who broke the story, andrea mitchell. >>> beyond the shape of president obama's second term administration and who is in his cabinet, we now know that president obama has scheduled a major meeting for tomorrow in washington with labor leaders. that will be on tuesday and then on wednesday the president is going to be meeting with a lot of ceos and business leaders. the world of big business in some ways large and small chose mitt romney over president obama during this election season. th
of putting it. >> i want to play what leon panetta said last night. he had reporters around him asking about the information he's been privy to. let's play it, please. basically, i'm sorry, and i apologize, we don't have that. he was asked if he has answers to critical information. he said i'm reading the papers like you are to determine just what the committee finds out. that you have leon panetta saying i'm reading the papers just like everyone else. what's your reaction to that information? >> he's talking about in terms of general petraeus. obviously, the defense secretary is aware of what the findings were in terms of general allen. because my understanding is that the justice department notified the council's office of what they called a potential problem with the allen nomination knowing there was a confirmation this week. and the defense department then took the steps to -- made it public last night and early this morning. so obviously he knows about this part of it. i assume he's talking about the petraeus part and the decision not to inform congress. and i think he also said in tha
socialite. secretary of defense leon panetta is urging people not to jump to conclusions about general george allen. allen is accused of having questionable communications with jill kelley, a social liaison to a tampa air force base. it was kelley who reportedly received threatening e-mails from paula broadwell, who was having an affair with now former cia director david petraeus. that led to petraeus' resignation. and broadwell is apparently here in washington. she's been spotted at her brother in northwest d.c. a man who appeared to be her brother, steven krantz, left last night but did not speak to reporters. and someone found broadwell's driver's license in rock creek park on monday. >>> leaders from the fda and the massachusetts department of health are expected to testify at a hearing in front of the house energy and commerce committee to determine how the meningitis outbreak started. a report shows the massachusetts pharmacy linked to that outbreak should have been shut down in 2002. the fda reports the pharmacy had multiple violations but stayed open on the promise that it woul
